Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is known for his insane acts of charity – which could be branching out from his videos, according to one of his Tweets.

MrBeast uploaded a video from a Dallas vs San Antonio basketball game, where a young boy was captured in the crowd wearing one of MrBeast’s hoodies (as well as sporting a popcorn container on his head).

MrBeast appeared to be pleased with the kid’s enthusiasm, and even offered a $10,000 reward to the child for wearing his merchandise on TV.

“Someone get me in contact with this kid so I can give him $10,000 for wearing my merch on TV,” MrBeast Tweeted, prompting a slew of hilarious responses beneath the post.

Despite the widespread jokes, the child in question actually reached out to the YouTuber in a video response beneath the Tweet.

“I love your sweatshirt, I love your channel, I love all your merch,” the boy said, revealing his name as Timothy Wright. “…I greatly appreciate the shout out.”

The child went on to give out his contact information, including a phone number – which resulted in Twitter user Katie Wright (likely the mother of the boy) learning a hilarious lesson.

“Oof, you definitely shouldn’t have put the phone number there,” one user responded to the video.

“I just learned a lesson,” Wright responded.

Other notable personalities in the space had humorous reactions to the tweet, with Fortnite caster and streamer KittyPlays calling the kid a “legend,” while others, like model Corinna Kopf, claiming that they were actually the boy, instead of Timothy.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
